- Haworthias are dainty succulent houseplants and are frequently compared and confused with Aloes, and Gasteria plants.
- This is hardly surprising since they're all members of the Asphodeloideae family.
- However, Haworthia almost always small and very slow-growing plants.
- They don't need much fuss or care and can even go for many weeks without water if required.
- They also tend to look brilliant in unusual containers or interesting soil mixes.
- These perks mean they can make fantastic easy-care gifts and presents for all types of people, suiting either a home or office environment.
- They'll get by with not a great deal of fuss or attention provided they're placed in a room with average warmth, away from direct sunlight and given the occasional drink.
- As well as being very easy going houseplants to have around, when it comes to picking out a Haworthia there's a vast number of different varieties to choose from.
- Use a cactus mix or very fast-draining potting soil mixed with sand.
- Feed your Haworthia very occasionally and when you do, ensure it's only a weak solution.
- Feeding two or three times a year is probably plenty.
- Plants that are producing massive numbers of offset around its base might benefit from a little more feed, but still, go easy as they're not big feeders.
- Haworthias are reasonably adaptable plants that that will take various light conditions, but neither direct sunlight or deep shade.
- Direct sunlight will make the leaves of all Haworthia's go an ugly red, purple or brown color.
- Move to a shady spot and if the damage isn't too bad these colorings will fade over time.
- A surviving plant will get by with watering just once a month, however, to get the plant thriving it will need to be done at least once a fortnight, possibly once a week in very warm temperatures.
- Either way, water well and then only water again when the soil has largely dried out.
- These plants are very tolerant of underwatering but will succumb quickly to rotting if overwatered.
- Make sure you try your best to keep water out of the crown or rosette of the plant, in cool temperatures doing this will again encourage rotting.
